UCSD students protested repulsive racial incident (hanging noose) on friday, chanting "real pain real action" (or maybe it was "real pain real change" - reports differ). i'm struck by this slogan - as something so immediate and tied to personal physical experiences. AT LARGE, UC public universities have been plagued by increasing resegregation ever since they banned affiramative action in '96. FOR example last year- of the 15,259 undergraduate students enrolled at UCSC, only 413 were African-American. that's like less than 2%. i think campus movements are good indicator of where race debates are at on potentially a mass scale so like to keep track...
